Daiwa Steez AGS

Hi All,

I'm looking for some info on the Daiwa Steez AGS line. I had a small amount of time with the 7'6 H flipping rod. I am interested in feedback of other rods in the line, sensitivity, action, balance, comfort etc.. Specifically anyone have any experience with their 7'1 MH F action, 7'4 XH F, the 7'6 H above, and the 8' H XF. Any other experience with other rods in the line, any that "stand out" would be great as well. I appreciate the help!

Thanks,

I don't know how much it will help but I have one of the AGS Steez Spinning rods. I think it is a fine rod and very sensitive. I have had it for a couple years and the guides have held up just fine. My only reservation is that I am using spinning equipment less and casting more, so it may not get the use that it would if it was a casting rod. Of course this is not a fault of the rod, only my changing tastes.

Hope this helps.

I've fished quite a few Daiwa Steez AGS rods now and overall, they are fantastic. My personal favorite is the 761MMLFS spinning rod, mine is paired with a new US Exist. I've been a die hard "Stella guy" for a very long time and this is the first reel that's made me question that loyalty - it's that good. Paired with the 761, it's a world class combo.

The 801HXB I haven't fished, but the 71MH is fantastic, the 721MHRB, 741XHFB, and the 761HFB are all top notch rods indeed.

I know this is a little off topic, but I for one am glad to see Bronzefly posting. Seems like it has been awhile. I have always enjoyed your informed posts. I apologize to the OP for going off topic.

I guess I just pay closer attention than you.

The little time I had with the 7'6 H, I felt like it was very much a bottom contact rod. Are the other rods in the line, specifically the 7'1 MH the same type of feeling, or do they play with swim jigs, chatterbaits (I know it's not ideal), but still some of those moving baits with single hooks?

I was just saying I noticed the same thing, fool.

When I had the 71 MH, I felt it may not be a great taper for moving baits. Maybe if you use mono.

Like Gary said the 76mml is one hell of a rod. I have mine paired with an Exsence.
